Eco-Friendly Cleaning Tools

Twist Dish Dumpling biodegradable eco-friendly kitchen cleaning toolsTwist has succeeded in combining design and environmental responsibility into cleaning alternatives.

Earlier this week I posted imaginative solutions to the common kitchen dilemma – where the $%## do I put the paper towels?!  For those who want to lessen their dependency on paper products or have been looking for alternative to the lovely, colorful sponges offered at the local grocery, Twist has the answers.  The Dish Dumpling is a scrub made from the succulent Agave.  The tough, twine-like pad is an excellent abrasive – it even removes baked on food – but it won’t damage your cookware or sink.

Twist Naked Sponges biodegradable eco-friendly kitchen cleaning toolsI was excited, yes, excited (thank you, beaglesdoitbetter) to be introduced to a white kitchen sponge.  WHITE!  I don’t know about you, but the colors found in traditional sponges are not aesthetically pleasing to me.  Twist sponges are “naked” due to the fact they contain no chemicals.  The 100% cellulose sponges are available in three sizes and can be purchased individually or by the case.  Yes, the case – excited again, as I’m known in our house to rarely buy one of anything.

Twist European eco-friendly sponge cloth paper towel substituteIf you’re in the market for a paper towel substitute, Twist’s European Sponge Cloth is an absorbent multi-use cloth.  It’s advertised to outlast 17 rolls of paper towels.  All of these products are 100% biodegradable and dye-free.  To sanitize any of these products, it’s as easy as tossing them in the dishwasher for a cycle, then microwaving for a minute.
